1 1 Art Print 1 shows God s creatures of the air, land, and sea. How is God s creation a gift to us? How can we care for God s creation? God Made Heaven and Earth At first, there was only God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God made the world. He made the sky, the sun, and the moon. He made the sea. God filled it with different kinds of fish. He made the land. He filled it with many kinds of animals. Then God said, Let us make someone special. So God made a man and a woman. He blessed them and told them to have children. He told them to take good care of the earth. God looked at everything he had made. God was pleased with all he had done. adapted from Genesis 1:1 31 Taking Care of God s Earth God created the sky, land, sea, and animals. Like the first man and woman, God wants us to take care of the earth. How do you show your family and friends that you take care of God s creation? Write one thing you do. Write one thing you see others do. Grade 2 Unit 1 Session 1

2 2 Art Print 2 shows a colorful picture of the Holy Family. What do you like to do with your family? The Story of Joseph Before Joseph and Mary were married, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream. The angel told Joseph that the baby that Mary was going to have would be from the Holy Spirit. Joseph did not understand. Then the angel said, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. The angel told Joseph to name the child Jesus. The name Jesus means God saves or God saves us. Because Jesus saves us from our sins, he is our Savior. After Joseph woke up from his dream, he took Mary as his wife. adapted from Matthew 1:18 24 Families Are Special Like the Holy Family, every member of your family is important. This makes your family special. Write two ways that tell how your family is special. Reading God s Word I will be with you always, until the end of the world! adapted from Matthew 28:20 Grade 2 Unit 1 Session 2

3 3 Art Print 3 shows a playful view of the earth from space. How does God care for the earth and for us? Trust in God Jesus wants us to know that God our Father is close to us. Jesus helps us learn to trust in God. Jesus said, Do not worry about your life. Do not worry about what you will eat or drink or what you will wear. Worrying will not add one minute to your life. See the birds that fly and the flowers that grow. The birds in the sky do not work. Yet God gives them the food they need to live. Be like the flowers that grow wild. They do not work. But God helps them grow strong. God provides for all of them. And he will provide for you. adapted from Matthew 6:25 34 Resting in God s Hands When you trust in God, you feel as if you are being held in his hands. Close your eyes. Imagine being held by God. How does it feel? Write your feelings. Reading God s Word Trust in the power of God. Place all your cares in his hands because he cares for you. adapted from 1 Peter 5:6 7 Grade 2 Unit 1 Session 3

4 4 Art Print 4 shows Jesus bringing light to a dark world. How can you bring the light of the Holy Spirit to those around you? The Work of the Holy Spirit We learn about the goodness of Jesus through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works within us and helps us do good things. We should not hide the good things we do. When others see the good we do, we shine like a light to the world. Jesus said, You are the light of the world. You cannot hide a city on a hill. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. The lamp is put on a lamp stand. There it can give light to everyone in the house. Let your light shine on everyone you know. This way they will see the good things you do. Then they will praise God, the Father, in heaven. adapted from Matthew 5:14 16 Shine a Light on Good Deeds When we do good things, we know the Holy Spirit is helping us. Write a good thing you have done for others. Write a good thing that someone has done for you. Reading God s Word You will be my light to the ends of the earth so that all people may be saved. adapted from Isaiah 49:6 Grade 2 Unit 1 Session 4

5 5 Art Print 5 shows the breaking of the bread at Mass. What is your favorite part of the Mass? We Celebrate Ordinary Time During Ordinary Time we celebrate Jesus. We learn to listen to his message and follow his example. Green is the color of Ordinary Time. It is also the color of nature when everything grows. We grow in Ordinary Time also. We grow by learning more about Jesus. We grow by showing our love for Jesus and others. It is a good time to reflect on all that is good and turn what we have learned into action. Mass in Ordinary Time When we go to Mass, we see the priest wearing a green chasuble. The chasuble is the outermost layer of a priest s vestments worn when celebrating Mass. Color this chasuble green as a symbol of Ordinary Time. Grade 2 Unit 1 Session 5

6 6 Art Print 6 shows Jesus talking to the teachers. What do you talk about with your teachers? Jesus with the Teachers When Jesus was 12 years old, he went with his parents to a festival in Jerusalem. After the festival Mary and Joseph headed for home with their friends. Mary and Joseph thought Jesus was traveling with them. When they could not find him, they became very worried. Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for Jesus. After three days they found him in the Temple. Jesus was sitting with the teachers, listening to them and asking questions. When his parents saw him, they were amazed. Mary asked, Son, why did you do this to us? We were very worried about you. Jesus said, I must do what my Father wants me to do. His parents did not completely understand. Jesus returned home with Mary and Joseph. Mary remembered what happened. Jesus grew older and wiser. adapted from Luke 2:41 52 Lost and Found Think of a time you lost something special.

7 7 Art Print 7 shows Jesus healing a blind man. People talked about Jesus miracles. What do you tell others about Jesus? Jesus Heals Jesus helped many people who were in need. He gave sight to those who could not see. He healed people who could not walk. These are examples of Jesus miracles. At the same time, there was a holy man named John the Baptist. He was teaching people about the coming of the Messiah. Some of John s followers told him about Jesus. So John sent them to ask Jesus, Are you the one we are waiting for, or should we keep looking? Jesus said to John s followers, Go and tell John what you have seen and heard. The blind see again. The sick get well. The deaf hear, and the dead are raised. The poor hear the good news that God loves them. adapted from Luke 7:18 22 Love Through Actions Think about ways you can be like Jesus by helping people. Write two things you can do to help others. Reading God s Word The eyes of the blind and the ears of the deaf will be opened. adapted from Isaiah 35:5 Grade 2 Unit 2 Session 7

8 8 Art Print 8 shows the parable of the banquet. How does God welcome everyone? How do we welcome others? The Parable of the Banquet Jesus often told a parable, or story, to teach an important lesson. This parable tells how everyone is invited to follow God. A man planned a dinner party and invited many people. On the day of the party, the man sent his servant to tell the guests, Come, everything is ready. One by one, the guests made excuses. One said, Sorry, but I must check the new land I bought. Another said, I must take care of the animals I bought. The servant reported to the master who got very angry. He said, Go into the town. Bring the poor and the sick, the blind and the lame. Even so, there was still room for more guests. The master said, Go out to the streets and highways. Have people come and fill my house. adapted from Luke 14:16 23 God s Invitation Write a note thanking God for his invitation to be close to him. Grade 2 Unit 2 Session 8

9 9 Art Print 9 shows a sculpture of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. How are you a good shepherd at home or school? Jesus, Our Shepherd A shepherd cares for his sheep. Jesus cares for us. A shepherd leads his flock. The sheep follow. Jesus leads us through his words and actions. We follow Jesus. A shepherd searches for any sheep that stray. Jesus will always help us come back to him. A shepherd feeds his flock. Jesus feeds us through the Eucharist. The Good Shepherd Draw a picture of Jesus as your shepherd. Grade 2 Unit 2 Session 9

10 10 Art Print 10 shows an Advent wreath. How does Jesus light our way? Lighting the Way for Jesus Advent is a time of waiting and getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Advent is also a time of lights. We see lighted candles on the Advent wreath. Homes and trees are decorated with colorful lights. Lights remind us that Jesus lights our way to love and happiness. We can do many things to make room for Jesus light in our hearts. We can pray. We can do good deeds. We can enjoy family customs to remember the true meaning of Christmas. Making Room for Jesus Light Write a list of specific things you will do this Advent to make room for the light of Jesus. Then draw a picture that shows how you feel when the waiting is over and Christmas has come. Things I Can Do This Advent Grade 2 Unit 2 Session 10

The healthy branches are like people who live close to God. God helps us when we invite him into our lives. We can ask God to guide us. Jesus said, I am the vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He helps the good branches become healthier. You are already healthy because you have listened to what I have said. Jesus continued, A branch cannot grow strong unless it stays on the vine. You cannot grow strong unless you stay close to me. Whoever stays close to me will grow strong. adapted from John 15:1 5 Grow Like a Vine Write two ways you can grow closer to God.

He was very rich. One day he heard that Jesus was coming through town. Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus very much. But Jesus was walking in a big crowd, and Zacchaeus was not tall. He could not see over the crowd. Zacchaeus ran ahead and climbed up a tree. Jesus saw him and said, Zacchaeus, come down. I want to stay at your house today. This made Zacchaeus very happy. The people in the crowd became angry. They wondered why Jesus was going to the home of a sinner. Zacchaeus said to Jesus, I will give half of everything I have to the poor. I will give money back to anyone I have cheated. Jesus was pleased. He said that Zacchaeus was saved that day. adapted from Luke 19:2 9 Forgive One Another Jesus forgave Zacchaeus. Write what forgiveness means to you. Forgiveness means. Reading God s Word Sell what you have and give to those who do not have much. Your treasure is with the Lord.

The people crowded the rooms and blocked the doorways. Four men came carrying their friend who wanted to see Jesus. He was paralyzed and could not walk. The men climbed to the roof and made an opening. They lowered their friend to Jesus. Jesus saw their faith. He said to the man who was paralyzed, Your sins are forgiven. Some people said, Only God can forgive sins! Jesus told the people that he had the power to forgive sins. He turned to the man who was paralyzed and said, Stand up and walk home. The man got up and walked away. The people were amazed. They knew that Jesus must be God. adapted from Mark 2:1 12 Friendship Draw a picture of a time that you helped a friend.

Families and friends gather in church to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Christmas is also a time for giving. God gave his only Son to us.
